The Boston Celtics rejected an offer for Paul Pierce from the Brooklyn Nets, and they've put rookie Fab Melo on the block in search of help in the backcourt.
Among the many rumors involving the Boston Celtics as the trade deadline approaches includes a trade that would send Kevin Garnett to the Los Angeles Clippers and another that would bring Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith to Beantown.
Paul Pierce scored 26 points and the Boston Celtics erased a 19-point deficit to post a prolific 89-81 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday evening at Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA.
Clearly the Celtics have loftier goals, but with last night's win against the Pacers, they put themselves in the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference playoff chase.
After starting off the year strong, Boston has hit the skids in recent weeks.
